On Saturday night, Kanye West cut his Sacramento concert short after appearing on stage for only 30 minutes. He reportedly began the show an hour and a half late, and performed only three songs. The majority of the truncated show was a long-winded, politically-charged rant in which he discussed his issues with hip-hop radio, called out Jay Z, Beyoncé, and DJ Khaled, and voiced his controversial political opinions. His rant was met with a chorus of boos and collective outrage.
Now, The Golden 1 Center has issued a statement saying that the show's attendees will receive a full refund from Ticketmaster. The statement, in full, says, "Tickets to last night’s show are being refunded at the original point of purchase. All original online orders purchased through Ticketmaster.com or by phone are being refunded automatically in full, including fees – with the exception of any UPS delivery surcharges. Refunds will post to the original payment source within 5-7 days.”
This is not the only time West has issued refunds to his fans, as he recently gave refunds to attendees of his Los Angeles concert, for which he has since scheduled a makeup show. His Los Angeles concert was cut short after he lost his voice while performing.
There is no word as to whether or not he will schedule a makeup show for the shortened Sacramento concert.
